Big short lived head & chestnut colour. Some apple-like aroma. Very malty flavour with just enough alcohol warmth. Caramelly sweetness develops as it warms, which I actually liked. Quite complex and worthy of rating #300.

Deep red pour with a clingy head. Thick belgian like taste. Somewhat swet with some fruit and tartness like grapefruit. Very clean finish, a bit of a strong alcohol taste.

bought in Lille: The best of biere de gardes that I’ve tasted in France. aroma is carmel. amber beer with good head and good lacing. flavor is carmel and spice without that unfortunate leathery note that other biere de gardes have had that just turns me off. its too stong and reminds me of an attic. alright texture. still i the world of beer this is not that special. Will stick to belgian ales probably from now on, even if I am in France.

nice amber color with orange golden shine and good airy head. Fine beer with nice aroma’s of fennel and soft spices. Beer with good texture and round mouthfeeling. In the taste there are some hints of malts, honey, herbs and star-anise. It ends with a warm and full mouthfeeling.
